    I'm staying near Colne, Lancs overnight, and was debating a bit of a ride somewhere local. Just pitched up at the hotel, tempting to get a Guiness and some crisps but it's a nice area. Give me some guidance in case l stay awake long enough to fire up the Torrey Canyon and nip out for an hour :)

    Colne, Padiham, over Pendle Hill to Clitheroe, Waddington, Newton in Boland, Dunsop Bridge over to Quernmore and then back either the same way or loop back via Caton and Slaidburn and back via Clitheroe and Padiham the way you came. That should do you but have a look at the weather, think storm hector is on the way so maybe crisps and guiness will be the better option tonight.

    You may be right. Sky has certainly changed since my post :confused:

    You are spoilt for choice! Here are two long rides which are very well known by the local community I'm sure. Slide2.JPG The second is the Tom Tom route in the MyDrive App and the 1st is from a German Touring website.

    I like it up there. Walked up Pendle Hill last summer, walked the MTB trails in Gisburn Forest but not done much on the roads. Happy hunting! :)
